Free energy audits for community buildings
Bradford Community Energy (BCE) is providing 50 free energy audits for community-owned or managed buildings, which could help save money and reduce carbon footprints.
TBCE is a co-operative energy company, based in Little Horton, which aims to promote renewable energy in community buildings, reduce fuel poverty, raise awareness of energy efficiency and work towards zero carbon emissions.
Putting the power to change in your hands
The audits will suggest equipment which could be funded via applications to small grants programmes, as well as insulation and other more significant measures.
We hope that its support will improve the economic recovery of Voluntary, Community and Social Enterprise (VCSE) organisations by reducing the impact of energy price rises.
The results of the audits will be used to produce an energy performance certificate which will give recommendations on improvements that could be made to save energy and money and reduce a building’s carbon footprint. They will also include illustrative payback periods for different types of energy-saving measures and carbon impact indicators to inform any budget planning
